2017 January Meeting announcement


Happy New Year!


As we enter our 6th year of Ribbons of Hope, we reflect on our mission of impacting on the lives of many women in Georgia.  Thank you all for being a part of it!   The Study Hall is gathering quotes from vendors for the new furniture and, yes, a 14 passenger Van!  I attended the Christmas gathering on December 12 and it was heartwarming to see the children decorate gingerbread houses, create ornaments for their trees at home and to thoughtfully pick out presents for their parents (93% live with their mother or grandmother).  The energy in the room was electric!  We look forward to hearing more from them in the future.


Our 2016 Kick off meeting will be Tuesday, January 24, 6:00 PM at the Home of Suzanne Christensen, 270 15th Street., NE, Unit 301, Atlanta.  Come for Cocktails and Conversation with your fellow members!  An electronic invitation to follow. A light supper will be served. 



Contribution of $2000 is due by February 15, 2017.  Please bring your check to our meeting on January 24 or you may send your Contribution check, payable to Ribbons of Hope – Invest in Women to our Treasurer:
